Local Attractions

Cawood Park is located in a tranquil location on the banks of the River Wharfe between Tadcaster and  Selby.

We’re also close to the historic city of York, where there is so much to see and do. For more information, see the Visit York website.

For something different, why not take a cruise down the River Ouse on one of the pleasure cruisers?

Or explore the many Abbeys, Churches, Museums and other historical places in the area, including beautiful Fountains Abbey, amazing York Minster, The York Museum and gardens, and Clifford’s Tower?

For an exciting and gruesome day out, you could visit Jorvik Viking Centre, and experience the sights, sounds and smells of Viking York in graphic reality!

York is also home to the Knavesmire Racecourse where you can enjoy a day at the races, several times a year. Also a popular concert and entertainment venue where big names such as Rod Stewart perform to sell-out crowds. Why not use Cawood Park as your base when you watch Rod perform on the 1st of June 2019?

York is one of England’s most exciting shopping destinations, with a mixture of charming medieval streets and modern shopping arcades to keep even the most avid shopaholic amused.
